The Canadian regional airline based at the small but perfectly formed Billy Bishop Airport in Toronto, Porter Airlines recently confirmed it would be introducing a service to Muskoka Airport this summer.

Muskoka has established itself among the world’s iconic summer retreats and the new Porter flight will operate twice a week - every Thursday and Monday from 27th June until 3rd September. The flying time between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Muskoka Airport is just twenty minutes and will be timed to connect with Porters growing route network from its Toronto base.

“Muskoka is an inspiring destination that attracts travellers from near and far,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “This new route serves as a great opportunity to link Muskoka to our North American network.”


“Explorers’ Edge is thrilled to be partnering with Porter Airlines to bring seasonal service to the Muskoka Airport this summer,” said James Murphy, executive director of Explorers’ Edge. “As the regional tourism organization for Muskoka, Parry Sound and Algonquin Park, it is our intent to leverage this service to increase international visitation across our entire region. Our thanks to the District of Muskoka representatives for their efforts to ready the airport, including working with Transport Canada and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority.”

“A new summer service between Toronto and Muskoka is great news for all Ontarians,” said Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Through this partnership, Porter Airlines and the regional tourism organization are opening a new route that will boost local business and make this stunning part of our province an easy-to-access vacation destination. Ontario is truly open for business in Muskoka.”
